It might feel like a whole lifetime ago now, but Reese Witherspoon made us all squeal with excitement in May 2018 when she revealed Legally Blonde 3 was happening.

The actress announced the sequel with an incredible Instagram video of herself lounging on a pool float while dressed in a pink sequin bikini, accompanied by the caption, "It's true."

And while details have been quite sparse up until this point, we now have a preliminary release date to mark in the calendars! Sadly, it's not as soon as we'd like, but filming hasn't yet taken place, and it's understandable the production would be delayed what with everything that's going on.

Hollywood studio MGM announced late on Tuesday (October 20) that Legally Blonde 3 will officially be hitting cinemas in May 2022, with Witherspoon returning as Elle Woods.

They wrote on Twitter, "Elle Woods is back! Legally Blonde 3 coming May 2022. We rest our case. #LegallyBlonde3 #ElleWoods @ReeseW"

Reese previously revealed she wouldn't be the only original cast member returning for the sequel. "I love Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson and Selma Blair and so there's so many great characters that people love," she told Entertainment Tonight.

Speaking about where Elle Woods might be now, she continued, "[Elle's] a very beloved character. You just want her to go on a hero's journey like she does in the first movie, and I'm having a great time working on it."

This comes as the Legally Blonde cast also virtually reunited on YouTube for the first time in two decades, where Reese teased some bending and snapping. She wrote on Instagram, "Ohmigod you guys!! It’s a Legally Blonde Reunion. 🎀 We laughed, we cried and we may or may not have done the bend & snap for old times sake! 💅🏽

"For the first time in 20 years, join me and the #LegallyBlonde cast tomorrow at 3:15PM PST on the @hellosunshine YouTube channel! PS: Don’t you want to see if Elle & Warner finally make up?"

So much good Legally Blonde news!
